EL DORADO — Four innings of perfect pitching led to the California Academy of Baseball knocking off El Dorado Jr. Legion Post 119 in an intra-county game, 6-0, in the finale of a twin bill Saturday at Union Mine High.

CAB winning pitcher Krischton Kern struck out seven El Dorado batters. He held El Dorado hitless until the bottom of the fifth inning when Joel Predretti singled to left field. Kern gave up two hits in the game.

“I thought Krischton pitched great,” CAB head coach Rusty McDonald said. “He has the ability to be a starting pitcher for us.”

El Dorado head coach Brett Robinson added, “He changes speeds really well. He had a fine outing.”

CAB, in winning 3-0f-4 from Post 119, scored its first run in the top of the first inning when leadoff hitter Zack Culp led off with a single to left field and scored on a wild pitch. He also scored the team’s second run in the top of the third inning when he singled and scored on a grounder.

Leading 2-0, CAB tacked on four more runs in the top of the sixth inning for the final score. Adam Washabaugh and Garrett Scalero had back-to-back doubles, with Washabaugh scoring on Scalero’s hit. After Kevin Morrison walked, Scalero scored on Culp’s sacrifice fly to left field.

CAB’s final two runs came when Morrison scored on Sawyer Schardt’s single to center field. Schardt scored on Nick Bonniksen’s single to left field to make it 6-0. CAB finished with 10 hits in the game; Culp was 2-for-5 with two RBIs, Matt Smith was 2-for-2 with an RBI. Washabaugh also had two hits.

El Dorado finished the game with two hits; Predretti’s single and Greg Alloway’s single in the bottom of the sixth inning.

CAB 9, El Dorado 2

In Saturday’s the first game of the doubleheader, CAB had seven hits and Post 119 had four.

Bonniksen pitched into the sixth inning for the visitors and Zach Terry finished up.

CAB scored two runs in the first, one in the fifth and six in the sixth as they had six hits in that inning — highlighted by Matt Smith’s two-run single.

El Dorado scored its run in the sixth and seventh innings.
